    • Niles: Well, we'll have to have Joan and Ted Birkin, that's a no-brainer.
      Frasier: Technically that's two no-brainers, forget the Birkins.
      Niles: Wait a minute, you can't just steamroll over me, I want the Birkins!
      Frasier: I don't!
      Niles: Well, I do!
      Frasier: All right, we each have a right to blackball, let's say, three guests. We will each get an equal voice.
      Niles: That's fair enough.
      (Frasier brings over the nut tray. Niles gets three nuts and Frasier
      gets three nuts. Frasier then places a bowl on the table)

      Frasier: That's three for me and three for you. And just to get the blackball rolling... (throws one in bowl) Bye-bye, Birkins!
      Niles: What about John and Carol Peterson, everyone loves them.
      Frasier: Not everyone! (throws his second in bowl) Blackball!
      Niles: Why?!
      Frasier: No, no, we never question the blackball. We just bow to its will.
      Niles: Fine, Nina and Arch Duncan.
      Frasier: "The Drunken Duncans?!" Have you lost your... (realizes) Wait a minute. You loathe the Duncans, you just want me to waste a blackball.
      Niles: That's insane, I adore the Duncans.
      Frasier: Really? Well, perhaps I misjudged them. Very well Niles, the Duncans it is. (slowly writing) Nina and Arch...
      Niles: Oh, stop it, they're hideous! (throws in his first) Blackball! What about the Walburts?
      Frasier: Oh, I like the Walburts.
      Niles: Finally. Gordons?
      Frasier: I love the Gordons, now we're rolling.
      Niles: How about the DiFalcos?
      Frasier: (throws in last) Blackball! She is a twit. How about the Whitneys?
      Niles: (throws in second) Blackball! He's a dolt. (Frasier begins eating another nut) Cromwells?
      Frasier: (throws in nut) Blackball!
      Niles: Look, if you're gonna... (notices it wasn't official) Wait a minute, you're out of blackballs... this is a dried-up old fig.
